Stylin': African American Expressive Culture, from Its Beginnings to the Zoot Suit 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
EdKupfer on LibraryThing 28 days ago
Two historians trace Black American styles in clothing, quiltmaking, dancing, hairstyles, and many more areas through the slavery and postslavery eras to show how these people fused bits and pieces of slaveholder and European fashions to their own African culture to create an entirely new and unique aesthetic. One that was often reviled by the dominant white culture, but within it contained seeds of defiance. The prose is remarkably lively for an academic book of this type.
